    What classes/specs scale best or better than the rest late in the expansion?

    Fury Warriors stand out the most. We’ve seen it time and time again. They’ve always suffered early on in the expansion and become beasts in the later patches with better gear. We have already seen how well they do now currently once you start picking up decent gear and get closer to 200 ilevel and above. What other classes perform or scale better than the rest while we move late into the expansion with future patches and with better gear?

    fury warriors scale very good with all the 10% buffs they recieve because they just not get tuned properly

    This is impossible and futile to predict and simply comes down to the tuning of the last patch.

    Yes, some classes scale better with increasing secondarys than others due to having more synergys and feedback loops (just look at the corruption madness last patch of bfa), but a simple xy% aura buff or nerf can negate that and it will only come down to that.

    Typically mages.

    Warriors don’t scale as well as they used to since rage was normalized. Fury was buffed 4(?) times in 9.0 so you might be confusing things.

    I really cant understand why they cannot get fury "right". Early game you feel like one of those floppy blade spinner things to keep flies off food - spinning around furiously smashing buttons, but doing no damage. Then you get some gear, and it feels better, and you actually start doing some damage!

    Then late expansion, you are spamming buttons endlessly doing all the damage - just, all the damage, all of it. It reminds me a bit of fire mages, at various times throughout wows history - bad, bad, bad, bad, bad, bad TOPPING THE METER META GOD MODE!

    Generally, warlocks have been ridiculously good at the end patch of every single expansion but vanilla (where they were held back by a complete lack of threat reduction). But TBC-BFA, warlocks have been godly at every final patch, with the biggest stand out being MoP. Though admittedly MoP had the best class balance out of every expansion. Best gameplay too.

    Fury and fire, because they've historically scaled really well with crit. Does not apply to every expansion of course, they were nerfed in-line in many.

    There is no consistent answer. it's always whoever randomly happens to scale best with current borrowed power of the patch.

    "Scaling" was removed long time ago. Now it is all about which classes will have the best synergy with new powers introduced in patch, and who get buffed/nerfed

    Holy Paladin. Fire Mage. Fury Warrior. Destruction Warlock.

    These spring to mind as they have increased proc chances for things based on secondary stat values. It's why we had the crazy Destruction Warlock/Holy Paladin 2v2 Comps in 8.3 etc.

    The game is suprisingly well balanced right now, raid mechanics are melee unfriendly as ever but the overall balance is pretty good.
    Moonkins and Holypaladins are of course a bit stupid in their role segement but thats pretty much it.

    Usually its not worth it to reroll for a slightly better spec, the M+ R.IO rankings with frozen/canceled accounts should be a big warning sign how to not play MMOs.
